Disney Pre-Travel Gift Ideas

Last year I chronicled our trip to Walt Disney World by giving my kids a gift of some sort every month and then posting it on here. (You can find the list here) This year I just bought them a bunch of stuff and will be giving them a gift bag with the stuff in it.

First off I knew I needed a bigger bag but I am too cheap to buy gift bags unless they are from Dollar Tree. I went to the local Dollar Tree and they didn't have any Disney bags so I was stuck as to what to use. Then, Eve and I were at Family Dollar and I found Disney Trick or Treat bags. Super cute and only $1. She picked out Toy Story for herself and we got Cars for Xander. These bags can also be used to trick or treating in Disney or at home. 

As for the gifts they both basically got the same thing, only varied to fit their personality. Here is Eve's:

This is what she got:
The orange thing is a zipper pouch to hold pressed pennies
Glow mask for MNSSHP
Halloween shirt for MNSSHP
Mini misting fan
Drink mix
2 tubes glow stix
Spider necklace for MNSSHP
Pressed penny tube
Anti-bac gel and holder
Gummi worms
2 packs of gum
Ear plugs (Eve only)
$25 Disney gift card
$10 Universal Studios gift card

Here is Xanders:

His has all of the same stuff (different colors) except he doesn't need ear plugs for the fireworks.

As for the halloween t-shirts, the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) is a halloween costume party but I don't like to pack costumes (we would for sure be over 50# on our luggage). Instead, we wear halloween shirts. It is still cute and we are still comfortable to walk around the huge Magic Kingdom.

  1. I LOVE that you do this, the trick or treat bags are a great idea.The dollar store is hit or miss with Disney stuff. Last year for our Disney countdown we had movie nights and I gave Nick a small gift every day the 7 days before our trip. Mostly little things, one time it was a shirt, the other a poncho, the other a gift card and so on.. he really loved it. When are you going?

  2. Oh I LOVE this idea!! I definitely want to start doing this when Mia is older!
